Isaiah 50: 2

Is My hand so short it cannot ransom? Or have I no power to deliver?

Don’t you love the passages where God just comes right out and speaks. In this verse He doesn’t just speak through the prophet Isaiah, He just shouts out His thoughts. It must be an important, emphatic message.

As we consider the words of this verse we may contemplate a wide range of situations in which this would be God’s communique to us. What is He saying here? Does something shout to you? What are you involved in right now that you would love to have God deliver you from? What is there in your life, right now, that if you spoke to God face to face you would say, “Father, rescue me from this and just take care of it for me?” Think about that situation and hear the Father ask you, “Is My hand so short it cannot ransom?” Immediately you think, “No, you are able to reach me.”

The point is that God wants us to think of Him in all the uncomfortable and even miserable life situations that occur. So often we do not even consider Him as our redeemer and our help. He is left in the background of our lives when He wants to be an integral part. Even on Sunday, we forget to talk to Him about that circumstance that is causing us stress and even robbing us of sleep.

God is saying to each of us today, “I have the power to deliver you.” No matter what the situation you are facing involves, He is well able to help you and I can promise you He is also willing. If God could have His way, we would live stress free lives. Sure, there is trouble in this world but Jesus said that is the very reason he was sending us the Holy Spirit whom he called “the helper.” These heavy burdens are not for us. They are for the three persons of the Trinity. Give them a call today. They want to hear from you.
